Well no one else will start a bbcode archive, so I'll do it myself!

I love bbcodes, bits of HTML joy that are often really lacking a most fora. I have made several in my time, some I have seen mentioned in passing at vb.org but never pinned down so I'm going to do these myself!

All of the following codes are added in your admincp under:
Custom BB Codes -> BB Code Manager -> Add New BB Code
or
Custom BB Codes -> Add New BB Code

Where I have typed '-->>' this is to show you an example of the output of using the code. Do not copy that data into your bbcode form.

All tags are tested in IE and Firefox - none of these 'IE only' rubbish tags

Credit to the following sign tags (well at least the first one) goes out to Hoffi in this thread which appeared ages ago when there was a separate vbtemplates site.

Button Image (Optional): Not yet created (would require a little custom coding too)
This is a very useful tag I made for my forum. What it does it takes a large image, e.g. a wallpaper or screenshot and stretches it to take up 100% of the avalible width. It then makes the image a link to the full version.

This stops the syndrome where you'd have either loads of oversized images, or loads of links. Also since the full version is loaded first time, when you click the link the full image loads instantly

100 TAG
Title: 100
Tag: 100
Replacement:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Example: [100]<path to image here>[/100] here's a thread on my forum where you can see it in action
Description: An image taking up 100% of the width of the page, click for full version
Use {option}: No
Button Image: not created
Only problem with this system as it stands is that it will occasionally make large images larger for people viewing on a very large resolution which can potentially make an image worse to look at. There are no plans to fix this yet as it would a totally different hack otherwise beyond my capabilities.

Another great benefit of this is it eliminates the moderator/administrator effort to police images that are too wide for people's screens, wrap this code and you'll never have that problem.

I might release 'variations' on this theme if people like. For example the hyperlink to full version may prevent other hyperlinks which may be a problem in some cases so you might use a version without the <a href... but I'm sure people can figure this out for yourselves.

You might want to use alternative tags like [largeimage] or [wide] or [fit] or something rather than [100]. I chose [100] because it's short, and it reminds me it fits the image to 100% width whatever happens. See attachment for what this looks like.

Well that's all folks. Get back to me on any mistakes if you want. This post took a long time to prepare as you might imagine!

If you install any of these tags, please click install

*****

Update: 27th December '05 -> Added a lot more button images, as well as fixed some old button images.
Thanks to dodgechargerfan for the ebay tag
Update: 11th March '06 -> Added the maquee tag, I mean why not?

I asked for this at vBulletin.com & they said it cannot be done: How can I place images for new custom BB codes where I want in the editor's interface? Now they're been added to the right.

Also, can I integrate them into the WYSIWYG interface mode, so they appear visually on the edting area, not between [][/] tags?

Drop me a link, I'd like to hear what he had to say. There are bbcodes for building tables entirely from scratch complete with cells and rows, I would understand if they were unsafe.

However the tag opens and closes the table in one, therefore I think it's safe.

What do you mean?

A horizonal divider like:

Sort of thing?

These are great! I've clicked install.

I like the links ones, but I needed something for eBay, so.....

I changed the google and wikipedia one a little bit and got it to work as an ebay search link.
Put your search words in between the tags for a link to do a search on those words.
If you use the actual item number in instead, you get the item's page instead of a search.

Another example:
[ebay]4598080562[/ebay] gives you 4598080562



Button Image? I don't know. I'll try, but it's a logo so I don't know if it's legal or not.

The Wikipedia button shows up large & fuzzy for me, which is not the case when I view the GIF in an editor. Otherwise, thanks for an excellent release!

Ah, I needed to give it a transparent border. I've updated the images, try with the new one.

Hmmm... I've found a way to do this but it's so very messy I'm in two minds about whether I should post it here.
